Poem: Santa was Gone

Innocent minds we had, 
anticipating His thespian arrival.
Seated in flocks, we waited,   
listening to the verses of Bible. 

“Ho! Ho! Ho!” He appeared, 
while jingle bells tolled the milieu. 
We all had our shares of euphoria 
before He bid his final adieu.

Every year, our faith, in Him, faded
as our psyche questioned the logic.
We knew there was no Santa, 
or a flying sleigh or any real Magic. 

An impostor with fake white beard, 
Masquerading, Red attire he would don.
Once we discovered the truth, 
Forever, our Santa was Gone.

We forgot, while trying to capture bliss, 
in building a world, that is Materialistic; 
Our grown-up minds failed to learn,
that goodwill, joy were actually, only symbolic. 

Unadulterated minds we had, 
when we sang along the Carol song.
We believed there is a Santa, 
and now I realize we were not wrong.

Merry Christmas to all the Readers and Fellow-Bloggers.
